How Smarter Tools Drive Performance, Investor Relations, and Communications
Globally, approximately 60 percent of companies that publicly communicate sustainability data respond to Corporate Sustainability Assessments (according to the Rescore 2016 survey) from CDP, RobecoSAM, EcoVadis, Sustainalytics, MSCI, Vigeo-Eiris (and many more).
Last year, 20,400 companies responded to Corporate Sustainability Assessments (CSA) sent by EcoVadis to enable large companies to assess risks and opportunities in their supply chain. In addition, CDP and RobecoSAM combined sent over 4,500 CSA invitations worldwide to the largest public traded companies.
Join Tennaxia to the fifth session in of the Haas Alumni Network series that inquires into why and how companies respond to CSAs. What is the added value for them? Why are large corporations using CSAs to reduce risks in their supply chain? How do investors use CSA data to improve their portfolio performance? What challenges are companies facing to reply to the growing number of CSA requests? And what is the future of Corporate Sustainability and ESG data management?
In this panel with corporate and investor representatives, we will view these topics from four perspectives:
- Why corporations reply to CSAs and what is the added value for them.
- How can CSAs reduce risks and increase performance in the supply chain.
- How are investors using data from CSAs to make better investment decisions.
- What technology exists to improve the quality of data provided in CSAs and reduce the burden of survey fatigue.
